Current Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Project title: Land Rehabilitation and Rangelands Management in Small Holders Agropastoral Production Systems in Southwestern Angola (Project RETESA). Description: To enhance the capacity of southwestern Angola’s smallholder agro-pastoral sector to mitigate the impact of land degradation processes and to rehabilitate degraded lands by mainstreaming SLM technologies into agro-pastoral and agricultural development initiatives.

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

The project will disseminate sustainable land management and adaptation practices in agro-forestry and land ecology in 350 communities. Total project cost: 15.397M US$. Implementing GEF agency: FAO.
